Other markers

Except for the markers that I have written about there are more markers that I haven’t tried out, but know about. There are different reasons why I haven’t bought them.
  • Some are difficult to buy from where I live, for an example Utrecht that won´t ship to Europe.  
  • Others are not produced anymore and therefore something I don´t have, but read about like the Yoken and Design art marker.
  • Some markers just seemed so bad that I refused to buy them; I read about Ironlak strikers that dry out in so many different places that I just didn't want to spend money on them. I became especially suspicious when one of the stores that sells them (I believe it was 33third.com but not sure) sold them for half the price because some of them where dried out.
  • Others I hesitate to buy because they seem to lack skin colors and that is an issue for me. For an example when studying the color chart of STA Art marker they had the same color chart numbers as Touch marker (and many more) so I knew that they lack skin colors.

Art-n-Fly Alcohol Markers (have the ordinary chisel and a fine nib, but have a nice and different design, new 2016?))  

BIC (after what I have seen on you tube they lack skin colors)

Bishi alcohol marker (looks like so many others, among them Molotow. I only seen them on EBay)

Chameleon marker (new for 2014, but they are not regularly markers, you loose control since the color is changing) 

Close to my heart (markers design to crafters, sold in sets)

Colorit (Have a chisel nib and a bullet nib, you get a really nice case for them, new for 2016?)

#coloring (I so them on You tube, they have a fine and a brush nib and where bought from Michaels)

Comic Graphic Marker (they only sell one set of 12, its just to few)

Concept Dual Tip Markers (new for the year of 2016?)

Conda Twin-Tip marker (only Hobbylobby?)

Design art marker (don´t think you can buy these nowadays)

Dual-tip artist´s markers Brush and fine (Barnes & Nobles)

Master art marker (only seen one photo of this markers, but they look like so many others, among them Molotow)

Master Marker. I think they are new for 2017 (maybe late 2016?). They look interesting, they have a brush nib and a chisel nib and seem to have a lot of nice colors that are useful for skin tones. They are quite cheap but at the moment I can only find them from US and shipping from US are reducibly expensive.

Graphmasters

Graphmaster case 
I found this marker on German EBay after I bought the Delta marker (also bought from the German EBay). The set I bought offered a good variety of colors (some good skin colors). All colors have one or two matching colors to blend with. The greys are following a hue as well as a value (so many greys can change in hue and therefore are not the perfect blend). Graphmasters are, however, quite difficult to blend properly when trying to do larger drawings, but do better on smaller drawings. 

If you want to read more about graphmaster you will find more information under the Rotbart Delta marker chapter.

Rotbart Delta marker

Delta, Poison and Graphmaster
I have known about these markers for some time now but have not been ably to buy them until now (thanks to EBay). Once again I come across markers that look more or less exactly the same. The new generation of poison marker, Graphmaster and Delta shown below have not only a look-alike barrel but all three also uses the same number system as Touch marker and On-The-Run. The ink does not seem to be the same though. When I compare the colors they differ from each other (as you can see below).
Delta case
Except for the markers I have mention above, I have also seen two other that looks the same. STA art marker (which I have seen on Amazon and Jacksons art) but never bought since they lack skin colors according to the color chart. I also saw someone that had bought a marker in France called “créamarker” with the same look.


Comparing colors, namnes and numbers 













Drawing made with Delta marker,
I tried many portrait but failed  due to blending abilities



They don't blend perfect which is most obvious when trying to draw bigger pieces. On smaller drawings they do an ok job. The colors are bright but a bit grainy. 











I was in a wonderful art store in Munich where I found some early Rotbart marker and I just had to buy two.
